||Unpleasant Horse is the result of PopCap's first game jam event, where employees formed small teams, chose a randomly generated name from a hat, and attempted to make a complete game in 24 hours. The name this team drew was “Unpleasant Horse Racing in the Sky”, and off they flew! It took a few more weeks to finish it up and apply some polish, but what you see here is essentially the game that they made during the game jam. We hope you enjoy it.
The good news is that you are a horse with wings. Nobody doesn't like those! The bad news is that you are a, well, rather unpleasant horse with wings. How unpleasant? Glad you asked. Get this: Your idea of a good time is bouncing from cloud to cloud and on to the backs of other, cuter flying ponies, who will thus be sent plummeting to a gruesome, bone-chewing demise, thanks to an unfortunately placed series of meat grinders on the ground below. (Really kind of a tragedy of civil engineering.) All is well and good for you, though---unless you happen to miss a cloud or pony, and then, guess what? Those meat grinders don't play favorites. So keep those wings flapping, don't miss a jump, and keep a lookout for cool powerups to keep you flying longer and higher!
PopCap games are for everyone. 4th & Battery games? Maybe not. 4th & Battery is where we get to try out smaller, stranger, edgier game ideas. Expect fun and occasional weirdness. Welcome to the sandbox!
